“MY HEART SOARS”

Hello

Hello again…yep still here and I am sure you are wondering what on earth type of card or calligraphy would have a title or name of MY HEART SOARS... the answer is neither of them.

Movies

I just finished watching for the 2nd or 3rd time  UPSIDE… ( I watched it on Showtime but I assume it would also be available on Prime Video)and those words are what happens at the end of the movie and also along the way… I don’t want to say its the best movie I have even seen but while I have heard those words before (don’t know where they actually came from) but this is the one thing that for me they apply to.  I am not going to tell you about it but you can always look it up on google or better yet IMDB.  Its is a fantastic movie and I can’t imagine ever not wanting to see it again…I PROMISE that if you only read the premise or plot for this movie it is not a downer…what kind of person would i be if sent you on a quest for something to make you cry or to make you sad,  I am sure that we all have things like that every day now including but not limited to the news. I kinda felt this way about the BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL…but this one tops that for sure…

This is a rotten time for all of us… and we are all wondering when will it end and if and when it does what will our worlds be like…hard to say but hopefully you find positive, beautiful things about your world and things that will make your HEART SOAR. 

NATURE

TURTLES at a pond at the edge of the WALMART parking lot..this was before it got so dang hot.

Ibus… also at the same pond they are such beggars they wait and hope that someone from walmart will come out and throw them some food. They are beggars for sure and you can recognize them by their curved beak. and they usually travel in hurds…

These guys eat bugs, snakes , lizards etc …and those long bills can go very deep into the ground ..

gator at CORKSCREW PARK in Florida

this guy can eat whatever he wants…lol

Pelican on the back of fishing boat on the east coast of Fl ….hoping for some scraps I am sure

WELL I CAN’T BELIEVE its been almost a month since I posted anything…for that I apologize..however we are now in the PACIFIC NORTHWEST and in addition to the normal jet lag from flying across country, I also have the “where is lag”..trying to remember how to get places and even where things are stored here… especially since its been a good 9 months since we were home.  But I am loving it and here are some photos of our back yard and deck..a wonderful neighbor was diligent in watering when necessary and checking on the house.

my frog buddha who holds the peanuts for the squirrels , jays and crows etc..as you can see its almost always empty..

We have lived here for about 20 years and only in the last two years have we had bunny in the back yard… maybe too many dogs around.

We recently too a quick trip to Peninsula and that included a trip to the Olympics and Hurricane Ridge…and what a great treat it was.. We saw a total of 10 deer on the way up and down and then several on the walk/hike across the top .. they were so special and obviously used to having people around and they were not the least bit shy

no trip to the peninsula is complete without a trip over to the straits of Juan de Fuca and of course that means Sea gulls and this guy definitely wanted his picture taken..

These are some of the wildflowers that we saw on the drive up to the top of Hurricane Ridge..note the bee on the thistle..

Above is one of my favorites Indian Paintbrush…

HUMOR

Now a couple of things to make your smile..

So with that said … I am going to sign off for today and I promise it won’t take a month for me to post again.

AS ALWAYS THANKS FOR STOPPIN BY…wire headed cyber toad aka kath
